I have a couple laptops sitting around but I just took ownership of a new SSD drive and even though it is only 32 Gigs, i think it is really going to serve me well. The other bad thing is it is probably not as fast – but what IS good, I am going to try to make it so that it keeps the whole laptop cool enough to stay running. Yeah, the silly thing keeps cutting off after about 10 minutes. I think it is related to the super huge, high speed, power sucking, hot HD that I put in there. Its been doomed from the start. We’ll see – if it doesn’t solve it, I’ll give up on it – or maybe try pulling out the extra memory. Whatever, its time for an upgrade – but before we invest in that depreciating asset, we’ll give this a shot.
